NEWPORT—After Circuit Judge Ben W. Hooper II ruled last November that a local law enforcement search of a Carson Springs residence was improper, charges contained in two indictments against 23-year-old Christopher Jamall Haney were dismissed in criminal court on Tuesday.Although he is far from out of trouble and is still expected to face aggravated assault and aggravated robbery charges in Cocke County and other charges which are believed to be pending before the local grand jury, the White Oak Avenue resident is no longer facing specific charges of aggravated burglary, two counts of theft of property valued at more than $1,000, and aggravated cruelty to animals. The last charge was filed after prosecutors alleged that a small dog was crushed to death underfoot during a home break-in.For
